This is the Day


Today is our last day of the Stenciled Online Card Class, and boy, did the instructors give us alot of ideas!  My mind is on overload, so I thought I'd start with the simplest idea this morning.  YAY that the snow has finally melted or blown off our skylight and I can get better pictures today!

Stenciled Day 4, Dry Embossing

Julie made a gorgeous card by first embossing her stencil into white cardstock and THEN sponging over the stencil for color.  This is a VERY subtle effect, at least with my cuttlebug and the paper that I used, but it is a pretty effect.  I used squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers and mowed lawn distress inks on my Mini Flower Frenzy stencil, and chose this favorite sentiment from the This is the Day stamp set.  And I had fun embellishing with sequins and sea mixed accents.  

This class today was packed with so many ideas - I'll be playing with just those ideas for weeks to come - a great way to get through the winter!  I highly recommend this class - you can start at any time by going HERE.

  5. There's that pretty stencil again! I actually have this one and was inspired to find it in my bottomless pit of "why did I buy this" stash. Now I know why I bought it. I love what you've done with it!

  21. I love the colors - I am in a green, blue, yellowish kick right now for some reason. I would say maybe I am excited for spring but in Central Florida it isn't like we have a white winter.
